Here's a more complicated version of the fix (patch explanation in the patch itself):

Subject: [PATCH] Ensure point manipulation only in WoMan buf

- WoMan-find-buffer definition is changed; now it only returns the WoMan
  buffer, does not switch to it. Bug fix: return the WoMan buffer name
  instead of the window name.
- woman-find-file is fixed (bug # 22332) so that now the point
  manipulation happens only in the WoMan buffer.

I don't think so.  By default the buffer should be displayed in the
selected window and ‘pop-to-buffer’ is supposed to "Select buffer BUFFER
in some window, preferably a different one."
